recording of The Film Mystery by Arthur B. Reeve
The Film Mystery is one of eighteen detective novels by Arthur B. Reeve starring his best known character Professor Craig Kennedy and his trusty sidekick Walter Jameson, a newspaper reporter. The pair bears an unmistakable resemblance to the more famous British master sleuth and his doctor friend. The setting of this mystery is the early days of movie making, and the murder victim is Stella Lamar, “the beautiful idol of the screen, beloved of millions”, who collapses and dies during the filming of a scene for her latest movie.

I liked it
I definitely liked this book, it had plenty of plot twists and foreshadowing. However, the beginning was a bit confusing, quite a few characters are introduced right away and I found myself jotting down notes to keep track of them. I had to listen to the first few chapters a few times before it all sunk in. But once you get past that, it is a very good story. Reader is very good, easy to follow.
